The worlds of AV (Audio Visual) and IT (Information Technology) have largely run parallel to one another since their inception.
Even the management of such systems has been primarily under the care of separate and distinct groups within an organization.
The synergy of the two technologies has rapidly come to fruition. Some catalysts are; IT's increased network capacities and capabilities and the AV world's heavy migration to digital signal processing. The combined efficiencies and capabilities have given rise to new applications and methods that are powerful and effective business tools that parlay into a substantial return on investments.
